Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

Jeff was hired to photograph a 100th birthday celebration. The celebration was arranged long distance, we never met Jeff till the day of the event, but his professionalism and reliability were evident from our first contact. He was on time for the event, a pleasure to work with, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. pleasure to work with.

Jaysn took incredible photos of our wedding day! He was very accommodating from the beginning and his responsiveness was the best we’ve had. We got our photos back within a week of the wedding! The editing, lighting, and angles were exactly what we were looking for. Even after we received our photos he continues to help us with any questions we have had. We highly recommend him for any event!

I am sooo happy Erica was the photographer for my 40th birthday! She was so much fun and got all the shots I wanted! Her care and concern for the type of event I wanted to capture was perfect! I would recommend you let her bless you with her personality, spirit, and joy!

Dave handled just what we needed in covering a big event for us. He was a true professional and gave us hands down the best photos we have to date of our CEO. Email communication was a little intermittent as it seems like he has a very busy schedule, but in the end, everything worked out great.

Dave is rock star! We had over 700 quests at our annual fundraising luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore and he darn near had a photo of everybody. Not only is he extremely professional but we had copies of the pictures in the timeline he listed in the quote. Truly appreciated! His expertise and positive attitude will be an absolute asset to your event.

Kevin, with Vibrant Portraits Studio, was so amazing to work with!!! He responded to my inquiry within minutes, called to confirm what I wanted, and kept in touch with me leading up to the day of my event. The day of, he arrived early to set up. We were doing bachelorette party photos, so we were a handful to deal with (12 crazy girls), but Kevin was so patient and fun and made sure we captured every pose we wanted. He sent our gallery less than 24 hours later. We are all very impressed with his work. Our pictures came out spectacular! The bride was happy and that was important! I can’t say enough great things about Kevin! Hire him! You won’t be sorry! Oh yea, his price is amazing for great memories! Thanks Kevin!!!
